Junior Volunteers

Thank you for your interest in the Junior Volunteer Program at Maine Medical Center! The Junior Volunteer program offers high school students an opportunity to gain experience in a healthcare setting while learning new skills and giving back to their community. Areas Junior Volunteers may serve in include: Retail Shops, Information Desk/Escort, Cafeteria, Mail Room, Admitting, Hospital Elder Life, and Clinical Patient Units.

Due to the Covid-19 Pandemic, all Volunteer Programs at Maine Medical Center are temporarily suspended. We hope to have the Junior Volunteer Program in 2021, but at this time no final decision has been made. Please continue to check this page for updated information.
